If you enjoy the little tourist trains you get all around Europe, this will suit your fancy. It is a tour so expect to stay on the train for the full ride. You get a view point half way up The funicular, which was better...More

This train ride was the highlight of my day in Bergen. This is NOT a hop on hop off. Ride is approximately 55 minutes, enjoyable scenery and views, different than funicular. Beautiful homes and views on the trip, the train speaker system narrated our journey....More

Very pleasant experience with one major issue/problem. You must use headphones to hear the narration which is quite good. The English language portion of the narration was done using the cabin sound system....road noise completely obliterated the sound for the first half. Headphones were used...More

This tour takes less than an hour and is only 150kr. Nice little basic trip. The whole narration is taped. If you have limited time and/money this is the trip for you to find out the basics on Bergen. It does stop on the mountain...More
